Try Of The Month is returning to club rugby for the 2019/20 season.
The competition is in its third year and entries are now open to tries scored in all divisions of the Men’s and Women’s Energia All-Ireland League.
Energia are Official Energy Partner to Irish Rugby and title sponsor of both the Men’s and Women’s All Ireland League competitions. They will be providing monthly prizes of €250 to the winners of both the men’s and women competitions.
Monthly winners will also be put forward for the #EnergiaAILTry Of The Year award. The overall winner is decided by public vote.
The purpose of the competition is to offer rugby fans a taste of what can be enjoyed at local rugby clubs across the four provinces.
It also encourages clubs themselves to promote the best of their rugby on their own social media channels to their own local community.
